The apoptosis of retinal ganglion cells leads to visual impairment and blindness in ocular neurodegenerative diseases, especially in diabetic retinopathy (DR). Mounting evidence suggests that oxidative stress contributes to the pathogenesis of DR. In the present study, we investigated whether bone mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) have protective ability to relieve hydrogen peroxide (H2O2)-induced injury on retinal ganglion cells in vitro. An immortalized retinal ganglion cells, RGC-5 cells, were exposed to an indicated concentration of H2O2 for 24 h...

Misidentification or cross-contamination of cell lines can cause serious issues. Human cell lines have been authenticated by short tandem repeat profiling; however, mouse cell lines have not been adequately assessed. In this study, mouse cell lines registered with the JCRB cell bank were examined by simple sequence length polymorphism (SSLP) analysis to identify their strains. Based on comparisons with 7 major inbred strains, our results revealed their strains in 80 of 90 cell lines. However, 12 of the 80 cell lines (15%) were found to differ from registered information...

The investigation of the mechanisms of red blood cell steadiness to the oxygen lack in tolerant teleosts is of current scientific interest. Black scorpionfish, Scorpaena porcus L., is a widespread benthal species in the Black Sea and is highly resistant to hypoxic influence. The morphological state of black scorpionfish red blood cells under acute hypoxia was assessed using DNA-binding dye SYBR Green I and fluorescent microscopy. Changes in membrane potential of mitochondria and functional activity of cells were determined by rhodamine 123 (R123) and fluorescein diacetate (FDA) fluorescence...

Maintenance and timely termination of cohesion on chromosomes ensures accurate chromosome segregation to guard against aneuploidy in mammalian oocytes and subsequent chromosomally abnormal pregnancies. Sororin, a cohesion stabilizer whose relevance in antagonizing the anti-cohesive property of Wings-apart like protein (Wapl), has been characterized in mitosis; however, the role of Sororin remains unclear during mammalian oocyte meiosis. Here, we show that Sororin is required for DNA damage repair and cohesion maintenance on chromosomes, and consequently, for mouse oocyte meiotic program...

Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been reported to play important roles in male reproduction. In our previous research, we studied the expression profile of lncRNAs in mouse male germ cells including spermatogonial stem cell, type A spermatogonia, pachytene spermatocyte, and round spermatid by microarray method, which showed that testis-enriched lncRNA AK015322 is highly expressed in spermatogonial stem cell. In this study, we found that AK015322 promotes proliferation of mouse spermatogonial stem cell line C18-4 in vitro...

Phosphoglycerate mutase 5 (PGAM5) is a mitochondrial membrane protein that plays crucial roles in necroptosis and apoptosis. Though PGAM5 is known to be required for inducing intrinsic apoptosis through interacting with BCL2 associated X protein (Bax) and dynamin-related protein 1 (Drp1), the expression and role of PGAM5 in cardiomyocyte apoptosis driven by myocardial ischemia/reperfusion injury(MIRI) has not been studied. The present study shows that PGAM5 expression decreased after MIRI in vivo, positively correlated with Bcl-xL expression, negatively correlated with Kelch-ECH associating protein 1 (Keap1) expression...

Development of skeletal muscle is a complicated biological process regulated by various regulation factors and signal pathways. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are novel gene regulators that control muscle cell development. microRNA-143 (miR-143) is highly expressed in skeletal muscle, and we found that miR-143 level is significantly increased during bovine skeletal muscle satellite cells (MSCs) differentiation process through microarray analysis and qRT-PCR detection. However, the function of miR-143 in bovine muscle development remained unclear...

Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) play an important role in angiogenesis. However, they exist in limited numbers in the human body. This study was aimed to produce EPCs, for autologous transplantation, using direct reprogramming of skin fibroblasts under GMP-compliant conditions. Fibroblasts were collected and cultured from the skin in DMEM/F12 medium supplemented with 5% activated platelet-rich plasma and 1% antibiotic-antimycotic solution. They were then transfected with mRNA ETV2 and incubated in culture medium under hypoxia (5% oxygen) for 14 d...

C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP) has been considered as a physiological meiotic inhibitor that stimulates the cGMP production by cumulus cell natriuretic peptide receptor 2 (NPR2), which inhibits oocyte phosphodiesterase type 3 activity and increases cAMP. In this study, we explored the effect of CNP pretreatment on the in vitro maturation (IVM) of bovine oocytes by examining changes in cleavage rate, blastocyst formation, mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) copy number, reactive oxygen species (ROS) level, glutathione (GSH) content, and redox state...

Angiogenesis is an essential process for the establishment, development, and dissemination of several malignant tumors including bladder cancer. The hypoxic condition promotes the stabilization of hypoxia-inducible factor 1 alpha (HIF-1α), which translocates to the nucleus to mediate angiogenic factors including the vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGF-A). AnaeroGen system was developed for microbiology area to create a low oxygen tension required to the growth of anaerobic bacteria. Here, we hypothesized the use of AnaeroGen system to induce hypoxia in T24 human bladder carcinoma cells, in order to promote the overexpression of VEGF-A...

Coral has strong regeneration ability, which has been applied for coral production and biodiversity protection via tissue ball (TB) culture. However, the architecture, morphological processes, and effects of environmental factors on TB formation have not been well investigated. In this study, we first observed TB formation from the cutting tentacle of scleractinia coral Goniopora lobata and uncovered its inner organization and architecture by confocal microscopy. We then found that the cutting tentacle TB could self-organize and reform a solid TB (sTB) in the culture media...

Chondrocyte plays a critical role in endochondral ossification and cartilage repair by maintaining the cartilaginous matrix. Statins have been widely used to lower the cholesterol level in patients with cardiovascular disorders. Previous research has demonstrated potential role of statins in chondrocyte proliferation. This study addresses the proliferation-regulatory effect of lovastatin in rabbit chondrocytes as well as the underlying signaling mechanisms, thereby exploring its potential application in chondrocyte-related disorders, such as cartilage damage and osteoarthritis...

Islet transplantation provides curative treatments to patients with type 1 diabetes, but donor shortage restricts the broad use of this therapy. Thus, generation of alternative transplantable cell sources is intensively investigated worldwide. We previously showed that bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (bmMSCs) can be reprogrammed to pancreatic-like cells through simultaneously forced suppression of Rest/Nrsf (repressor element-1 silencing transcription factor/neuronal restrictive silencing factor) and Shh (sonic hedgehog) and activation of Pdx1 (pancreas and duodenal transcription factor 1)...

Mouse zinc finger and SCAN domain containing 4 (Zscan4) proteins, which are encoded by multiple copies of Zscan4 genes, are expressed specifically in preimplantation embryos in vivo and embryonic stem (ES) cells in vitro. However, the expression patterns of mouse Zscan4 in vivo have been largely elusive. Here, we show that Zscan4 proteins are expressed in adult ovaries and testes. In ovaries, Zscan4 proteins were detected in germinal vesicle (GV) stage oocytes in antral follicles, indicating that Zscan4 genes are activated during the diplotene/dictyate stage in meiotic prophase I...

To understand the mechanism of muscle remodeling during Xenopus laevis metamorphosis, we examined the in vitro effect of insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) on growth and differentiation of three different-fate myogenic cell populations: tadpole tail, tadpole dorsal, and young adult leg muscle. IGF-1 promoted growth and differentiation of both tail and leg myogenic cells only under conditions where these cells could proliferate. Inhibition of cell proliferation by DNA synthesis inhibitor cytosine arabinoside completely canceled the IGF-1's cell differentiation promotion, suggesting the possibility that IGF-1's differentiation-promotion effect is an indirect effect via IGF-1's cell proliferation promotion...

Mouse Zinc finger and SCAN domain containing 4 (Zscan4) is encoded in multiple copies of Zscan4 genes, which are expressed in late two-cell stage preimplantation embryos and in 1-5% of the embryonic stem (ES) cell population at a given time. Due to the highly identical nucleotide sequences of multiple copies of Zscan4 paralogs and pseudogenes in the mouse Zscan4 genomic cluster, previous analyses have been done using exogenous transgenes under the regulation of Zscan4c promoter. In this manuscript, we generated knock-in mouse ES cell lines and mouse lines, in which the expression of endogenous Zscan4c, one of the Zscan4 genes, can be specifically monitored with a green fluorescent protein variant, Emerald...
